Yep. It’s really hard to believe how stupid those peopple are.
They knew she was a snake when they let her in.
Their is a religion out there that allows for lying in certain cases like this. You can guess.
Lib jews will still vote for her over any republican
She also lied about having married her brother
Muslims are experts at lying ,it’s how they survive in Islam
Hey Minnesota, she got your vote under false pretense. Want a do-over? What were you thinking electing a Somali Muslim? You want that BS in your own state house, that’s your business, but why inflict that on the rest of us?
Sharia type and a dem in congress, of course she lies.
Nobody saw that coming!
Do what you gotta do to get elected....then completely ignore the will of those who put you in office?
Recall elections are a little difficult to arrange, but this might be one of the few options available to the constituents.
Feel good pseudo-intellectualism is capable of destroying Western society, and ushering in another dark age. Truly.
Of course they did. The voters in general did not.
Let them cry.
